Tomorrow is the last day of school! Can you believe the year is over? I truly cannot! Please know how much I appreciate everyone's help and support. This year was a success because of you! I hope that you all will pop in next year to say hello and please encourage your child to do so as well. I know I'm going to need a hug and smile from familiar faces that I love.
In the craziness of today I complete forgot to send home your child's LHJ. I'll send home any I can with car riders and ASP students tomorrow. I will hold on to all others and you can drop in and pick it up next school year during Sneak - A -Peek. So sorry!
Thank you for the wonderful cook book filled with delicious recipes and priceless pictures. I can't put into words how much it means to me. I will FOREVER treasure it! As I cook these delicious dishes over the coming years I will remember you all fondly. Thank you for sharing your most precious angels with me this year. It was an honor to be their teacher. I also appreciate the Visa card which will be taken on vacation. Again, thank you for EVERYTHING!!
No back packs or lunch boxes are allowed tomorrow.
Top 5: Rosie (179.8), Ella K. (55.2), Andrew (48.6), Nadia (42.4), and Sidney (38.5) Congrats to these students. I have to say Kyle was number six and was only half a point away from Sidney. It was a close race! I'm impressed with the effort these students put into their reading this quarter. It's also worth saying that 17 of our students had double or more than double the required points. Amazing!
100 POINT CLUB for A.R. Rosie, Andrew, Kyle, Diana, Matthew, Mary Alice, Natalie, Ella K., Evan, Nadia, and Vivian
Way to go! These students had over 100 points this year. I'm so proud of you all!
All assessments have been given except for the re-takes on problem solving. I will give those with a grade below 3 another test on Monday morning. Practice if that's you. Top 5 and 100 Point Club will be announced and prizes awarded on Monday. The celebration time hasn't been set. We will not be filling out assignment sheets any more. There's NO MORE HOMEWORK! Look for behavior sheets to still go home on Monday, but not Tuesday or Wednesday. If there is a behavior you need to know about you'll be e-mailed at the end of the day. Please make sure letter home journals are returned Monday morning if they weren't returned today.
Tonight's homework is on arrays. Please remind your child that the first number shows the rows and the second shows the columns. When writing the addition sentence, the first number tells how many of the second number that is being added. For example: a 3 by 4 array is 3 rows and 4 columns. The addition sentence would be: 4+4+4=12. The array assessment will be on Friday.
Thank you to all of today's volunteers. We had so much fun!
Today we began the unit on arrays. I told the class to always start with the rows and then move to the columns. We discussed that rows go side to side and columns are up and down. We also learned how to write the repeated addition problem that goes with the arrays. We also practiced turning the addition probolems into multiplication problems.
Spelling is over. There will not be any more units. Your child should have taken home the sort book from school today.
Don't forget that all points are due this Friday by the end of school. The celebration will be next week.
A great BIG THANK YOU to the Allens for the popsicles we needed for the 19th. The Websters and Trichells are sending in some bubbles, but we still need more. If you're able to send some in please let me know. Thank you, again.
Congratulations to Mrs. McReynolds for winning Garrison Mill's first yogurt eating contest at Yogli Mogli night.
Congratulations to Sara who won a gem stone for her mom in the Dazzling Mom contest. I hope everyone enjoyed the author celebration today. I want to thank everyone for joining us. The children were so excited to show you their hard work from this school year. They were so cute as they reviewed their writing. They were commenting on errors made, handwriting, amount written at the end compared to the beginning, and how many things they had written this year. I'm sure you'll enjoy reading the response journal too when it goes home. Thank you for coming.
